By the Way, Rubio Is Still a Schumer Republican

Quick reminder courtesy of Senator Schumer.  Rubio’s biggest and most substantive ‘accomplishment’ during his tenure in the Senate was the Gang of Eight amnesty bill.  He was the point man that pushed it through the Senate and another good reason, should he be the nominee, to purge vote the top of the ticket in 2016.

What about everything else he’s said and done?  Remember your Establishment 101, namely, to make plenty of the proper noises and take plenty of the proper votes when you know nothing will come of it.   Nothing’s getting by Reid and Obama so he’s safe on any conservative thing he pretends to do.  His reality is amnesty.  His only reality is amnesty.

McCain Disagrees with Governor Walker

This makes me glad I donated to Walker.  If the Mavericky John McCain has a problem with him, he’s doing something right.  In this instance, Walker is at least saying something right on immigration, so of course the amnesty shills are going to have a problem with it.  Their cronies don’t like that sort of talk.

It’s just a matter of getting McCain out of office in 2016, and I’ll repeat this until I’m blue in the face.  The Republican Establishment is not our ally, they’re the first set of opponents that have to go before we can even begin to deal with the Democrats.  You’ve seen instances at the state level of what happens when reform-minded Republicans actually institute conservative reforms, reforms that will be impeded by those like McCain.  If sleazes his way through the primary by running ringer candidates to split the conservative vote, jackhammers his opponents with crony money, or has Palin carry him to victory again, vote against him in the general.  You will not be rid of him for another six years otherwise.

Boehner Allows a Clean DHS Bill

Perhaps the word ‘allows’ is not appropriate.  Boehner was complicit in the passage of a clean DHS funding bill that kept Obama’s executive amnesty intact with yet another Boehner special.  If the injunction against the President’s execution of the amnesty doesn’t hold, we’ll have been cursed with yet another one.

Forget wailing and the gnashing of teeth.  By now, you have either decided you’re done with more of the same or you have not.  If you have not and wish to overcome this, resolve to be done with the usual.  It’s time for the next steps and they don’t follow in the previous ones.

What those next steps are is subject to debate.  Some say third party.  Some say be more ruthless in removing the perfidious from office and continue to try and take over.  Some say we have to give the wrong people good reason to do the right things.  There’s also Levin’s Article V convention and state level nullification.  It remains to be seen which one or combination of the above is the solution.

What is absolutely indisputable at this point is that the definition of insanity is not the solution.  No, we don’t keep falling into line with the Republicans without question because (fill in the blank with a Democrat) or Greater Good.  They’ve amply demonstrated they don’t stop Democrats and at the national level, serve no greater good.

So to start, quit listening to those advocating for more of the same.  Tune out the fear and the browbeating tactics.  Quit giving page hits and ad clicks to Establishment shills.  There are a whole host of blogs on Badblue.com that would be happy to have you visit and many of them have better manners.

Quit letting your memory fail you and taking those claiming conservatism at their words each election.  If your representative is Establishment, quit restricting yourself to artificial windows such as primaries only to remove them.  Acclimate yourselves to split-ticket voting to help remove them from office, or at the very least blanking the lines of those who do not deserve your support (I did it to Gillespie to keep another Establishment politician out of the Senate, so I’m not just blowing air).  Their calculations include conservative nose-holding and are thus far sufficiently valid, so stop doing what they want and change that calculation.

Forget unfocused rage and change to become what is necessary to fix these circumstances.  If you want those saying they represent you to succeed for America, ensure their betrayals and failures have no other outcome besides losing their seats.  That means no more definition of insanity ever again, and no more granting credibility to those that continue to try and enforce it.

McConnell Folds On Amnesty. Time to Try Something Different.

First, the sad but obvious news.  McConnell has decided he’s going to give the Democrats what they want and pretend he’s putting up a fight with a separate bill to defund executive amnesty.   Reid responds by making it abundantly clear he has backhanded the chinless wonder into submission.  Now, we can all be upset about it for a week or two, churn out vast quantities of prose, and then watch it all fade, or we can try something new.

How do these idiots keep getting elected?  Well, they have money and when dealing with conservatives, an actual capacity to fight.  Unfortunately, they also network and that is something we haven’t considered at any length.  Seeing as how McConnell is causing trouble from leadership, let’s trace back how he got there and take it out on those responsible.  We can start with the Establishment sellout that helped McConnell keep his job and owns all of his failures and betrayals for the next six years:  Senator Rand Paul.

Here are the highlights.  Rand Paul endorsed him (prior to him getting an opponent in the hopes of scaring off primary opponents), cut ads with McConnell and lent him some nose-holding staff.  This helped our miserable excuse for a majority leader get him through the primaries against Matt Bevin.  It kept those of us who knew what his ‘leadership’ would mean from getting rid of him because 2016 Presidential ambitions.  There’s also Paul’s opinion on the tactics used by Cochran on McDaniel.  But hey, it’s only networking, right?  What’s an amnesty or any other disastrous policy McConnell refuses to fight in the face of some professional development?

Except it’s not just professional development.  These policies are going to have deleterious effects on the people that helped Paul attain his seat in the first place.  It’s why those of us who understood the importance of changing leadership were trying to make it happen, only to be screamed down by Establishment shills or overwhelmed by influence brought to bear.  But we’re all supposed to just forget about that and move on, right?  How about no.

Want to put a chill on Establishment networking?  Spend the next two years reminding everyone of Paul’s place in McConnell’s ascent to majority leadership.  McConnell’s return to the Senate is partly his work after all.  All the articles the MSM got to write about how McConnell crushed the Tea Party can be hung around Paul’s neck, and everything McConnell does can and should be considered during the 2016 primaries when Paul is asking for your vote.   Forget what he’s saying between elections now that the chances of anything coming of his words is next to nil.  He wanted to network with McConnell, so give him the professional development until it hurts.

Politics ain’t beanbag, or at least that’s what they tell us when the shoe is on the other foot.
